is that he's running for president of the united states. he's not running for president of one half of the united states or president of the republican party. and as barack obama said so brilliantly in his speech at the convention, you know, we're a community and we need to all work together to a common goal. and you know, to divide the country and say this half is this half is just wrong. second, his facts are wrong. that 47%, those people are paying taxes. many of them are paying a higher tax rate than mitt romney is because they're paying their payroll taxes at 14%. and third, all politicians should understand, when you're running for president or any other office, you can't talk out of both sides of your mouth. you can't go to a fund-raiser and say one thing and then go on tv and say another thing. you need to speak consistently about what you're for. and it just goes to show the choice we have in this election is so stark, and mitt romney has laid it out so clearly that i think democrats, rightfully this morning, and people in the country, rightfully this morning, see what they
to the united states, don't be surprised if you see the president greet the dead bodies when they come back to the united states later today. now, despite the focus on foreign policy fight, both the president and romney have also seemed anxious on the trail yesterday to turn back to domestic issues. look at romney. he tried to boost support among women. every speaker at the romney rally in virginia, other than romney, was a woman. the campaign made sure women were featured prominently behind romney when he spoke. >> i had a chance to meet a woman entrepreneur. i met a lot of them. i met one and said to her, how duties your business started? she said, well, my husband lost his job -- >> stumping in colorado the president tried to connect with voters on the personal level as he's been doing using his own biography in an attempt to show a subtle contrast with romney. >> let's face it, a mixed kid from hawaii born to a single mom is not likely to become president of the united states. >> then there was vice president biden who stumped in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. ryan was back on cap
romney he give a foreign policy speech which talks about the united states' role not only in the middle east but in the world. >> in california, federal authorities are investigating the man who posted the anti-muslim video that sparked the outrage. >>> and ambassador chris stevens' sister remembers her big brother. >> he was so focused on, you know, the joyous times on his diplomatic mission, that he didn't even go into really talking too much about how afraid he was, you know, for his life. >> on the campaign trail, 53 days, polls today show president obama pulling ahead in critical battleground states. and move over, david gregory's got his own gangnan style. >> side to side right after this. ♪ >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell, live in washington. joining us, chris elissa managing editor of post politics.com and chuck todd, chief white house correspondent, political director and host of "the daily run down" here on msnbc. chuck, to you and you chris, the foreign policy debate this week that we've seen mitt romney coming out while the state department is still trying to identify bo
two oil producing state in the united states. they just announced they have 42 times, not 42%, natural gas in ohio as they thought they did a year ago. i mean, just the drive of the energy sector under a romney administration generates in royalties, in taxes on new jobs and taxes on profits a major step towards the balanced budget. now you've got to control spending. paul ryan would be about as good a vice president as you could get if you wanted to have somebody. i mean, he will know more about the budget than the director of the budget. >> quick comment, and then i've got to go to a break. >> i'm all for exploiting our natural gas. it's incredible bounty. but if we don't do it as a bridge to a cleaner energy future we're going to burn up, choke up, heat up, smoke up and melt up this planet. far faster than even al gore predicts. >> all right. we're going to take a break here. i want to come back and talk a little bit about a big issue as we go into the democratic convention. gender politics. it was certainly big for the republicans. it will be big for the democrats as well. our polit
that a black man was elected president of the united states. it made us proud as americans to know that those prejudices that we've had in the past are falling away. >>> beyond some of the more personal areas, we sat down at campaign headquarters the next morning for a more detailed discussion about where governor romney stands on the key issues of the campaign. so governor we talked last night about the jobs and the economy and also the debt. and i want to begin there. you've called the debt and our deficit a moral crisis. and yet in addition to extending the bush tax cuts you want to cut tax rates an additional 20%. you rejected a 10-to-1 spending ratio when it comes to spending to increasing taxes, and yet you want to balance the budget. the math simply doesn't add up. does it? >> well, actually it does. and the good news is that five different economic studies, including one at harvard, and princeton, and aei, and a couple at the "wall street journal," all show that if we bring down our top rates, and actually go across the board, bring down rates for everyone in america, but also limit
jobs, i'm creating jobs. i'm fighting to improve schools in the united states of america. i'm not fighting on behalf of rich values or poor values or 53% value. i'm fighting for american values. he's fighting for american values. but the other candidate, the man behind the mask, he's offering us a budget that takes care of the rich but leaves everyone else in the dust. >> show me your budget. i'll tell you what you've got. let's take a look at their budget. why are they doing it? well, they are doing it because they have to. and here's the reason they have to. they cannot possibly, possibly continue to add to the tax cuts of the super wealthy. >> that's what is behind the romney mask. that's what the next 39 days to the election are all about. and a special thank you to our fake president and mitt romney for helping us to predict this election. joining me now unmasked is krystal ball, co-host of "the nik kell" on msnbc and dana milbank. thank you both for being here this evening. >> thank, reverend. >> krystal, let me start with you. romney is falling behind not because he's
. >> and when i become president of the united states. >> i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> we'll be talking with our political journalists about all that in just a moment. today there's reaction and a rare reversal from u.s. intelligence official on what happened in libya. officials now admit they got it wrong. the director of national intelligence office says "we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information." and the intelligence community now believes it was a "deliberate and organized attack" which left the u.s. ambassador and three others dead. now members of congress from both parties are demanding answers. on the ground in benghazi, investigators can't even get to the scene. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house with more on this. mike, how big a deal is this reversal? >> reporter: well, it's very controversial and potentially a big deal. the question all along is ever since those september 11th attacks what caused them, what was the motivation for the people who killed four americans including
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,

would be the democratic nominee and president of the united states if that was the case. you have to give people a reason to vote for you. >> steve, you make pay compelling argument there. the debates, perhaps, michael, the next opportunity and the last opportunity for mitt romney to make this case. both sides have elised memos. this is beth myers of the romney campaign. this is what she says in part. it's clear that president obama will use his ample rhett for cal gifts in debating experience at one end. we expect a 90-minute attack ad. david axelrod not to be outdone by the obama campaign. saying we expect mitt romney to be prepared, disciplined and aaggressive. the first debate generally favor challengers. both sides are trying to manage expectations here? >> absolutely. >> this guy's really good. >> how do we get in the ring with him all of a sudden? >> right. >> they're skilled on their feet. that's how they got this far. i don't know that the second and third debate will matter that much for governor romney if there isn't something significant out of debate number one. >> i
had the look of a shotgun marriage. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention

walked out on the stage of the u.s. congress and -- chamber of the united states house and gave an amazing barn burning state of the union address. his mind was totally on the big stuff. >> right. >> how did he do that? how did it clear his head? >> i suppose that's -- that will be -- a question for the ages. right? compartmentalization or whatever. focus. ability to focus on the things he cares about. the things he can control. and the things that he thinks make a difference. it is what gets him out of bed excited every day. one of the things that struck me when i first met him was his ability to bring people to his ideas and get them excited about the possibility. and i think we will see that at the arena tonight. it is still possible. he still is the man from hoboken and can bring people in, get them excited and fired up and go out do street work. >> let me ask you about the politics. in these two guys get together as secretary clinton and president clinton have been at least formally, the democratic parties united. if he can get the white noncollege people from southwestern

if you want to see barack obama re-elected president of the united states, do whatever you can for virgil goode. they challenged his spot on the ballot and they said put him on the ballot anyway, and he's going to be on the ballot unless virginia's attorney general, this guy, decides to kick virgil goode off the ballot. he's been campaigning for mitt romney including last week at the republican convention. under virginia law, he gets to decide whether virgil goode gets his name on the ballot or not. look at the headline, he promises he will be absolutely objective about this whole thing. absolutely. virginia is getting three different mitt romney ads this week. virginia, ohio, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. that's it, that's the election. who the country is counting on to handle this election about the presidency for the rest of us, eight states. when stuff gets weird in one of those eight states, when something like virgil goode happens in one of those eight states, while that might be a weird side bar virginia story at any other time in any other politic
, at age 5 or 6, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help. the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back, we help lift them up. but then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have that become government dependence. we help people, we get them on their feet. >> mitt romney speaking just moments ago at univision's meet the candidate event at the university of miami. somewhat changing his language on immigration reform, talking about his dad as an immigrant from mexico. also defending his january remarks at another point in his speech that he was in favor of self-deportation. a video emerged the today on the campaign trail from when governor romney's father, george romney, was running for governor in the state of michigan. his wife, lenoir, talking to an interviewer about how, in fact, george romney had received welfare relief for a few years when first coming to this count
properly appreciated the gravity of the house crisis in the united states, and putting -- fixing that in a way that people could either try to save their homes, refinance, even if their home value is underwater, but they had equity in it. so i'd say this more as preemptive, and since congress is so unpopular, doesn't hurt to blame them. >> and here's the thing with housing, lynn, not to get off on a tangent, but one of the things that's rarely addressed is a lot of the folks who desperately need to refinance their homes, their credit has taken such -- it's been battered so badly during the crisis, they don't qualify for the refi. >> well, and i'll do this quickly. that's my point. if you talk about why people might hone in on this issue and why obama's focusing on this, before the debate, where it is likely a reasonable thing to guess that it might come up, is that he realizes that this is a vulnerable area, achilles heel, and now trying to shift the blame ahead of time to congress. i say this is a little bit of setting the stage for obama vulnerability that people can relate to.
by the year. rick scott, i would dare say, is perhaps the most conservative governor in the united states. florida, i understand it's a swing state in presidential election, but it's a swing state when you have, you know, guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy who looked like ryan pushing granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big debate that he had with charlie crist and the democratic opponent, he talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possibly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. the voters there are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite presi
matters, i think barack obama -- in god we trust, that's our slow began for the united states of america. i think we ought to start the platform with this. >> isn't the platform useless? because you wanted to hang the platforms around their neck. >> we mentioned faith, 15 or 20 times in there, it was pretty clear, i was on a repeating network, i won't who it was, it was fox. but it showed that we're somehow godless democrats. you should have seen the array of speakers last night, people of faith who were speaking of faith and what it meant to their lives. republican lover this country and are god fearing, as democrats are god fearing and love their country. >> why will it be different in 2012? >> i think we have a new map and we have better candidates, i think, and we have a great opportunity to elect six or seven democrats to the congress which are brand-new and we left si side -- have the issues that will help the president win in our state you can look at t the ---you will see mange line republicans who said this. the same reason -- this is not the republican party of abraham lincoln,
of the united states. it is one thing to screw up your nominating convention. like this. it's another thing to deny you screwed it up and said you did something that you did not do. when you say you went to the american legion and gave a speech about policy ideas, you did not do that. the press does follow you. you were right about that. the candidate will try to make up for this with a speech on the 9/11 anniversary. if he tries to continue to deny that he made the mistake in the first place, he will have compounded this error gravely. >>> this has been a pretty great campaign season but there will never be a season like 2010. if we don't get what we want, we'll start shooting. christina o'donnell, not a witch. but remember joe miller versus lisa murkowski? i have found myself thinking of what we learned on our show's trip up to alaska that fall to cover joe miller and his supporters. >> good luck, you guys. >> we disagree with that. >> she voted to confirm eric holder. >> why are you against that? what's he done against guns? >> what hasn't he done against guns? let's look at what his vot
to the population of the united states is now increasing. and it's not just white supremacies and neo-nazis. that's one of the specific investigations i did. what's more widely known are the soldiers with mentally unhealthy disorders. >> that is perhaps an entirely separate conversation. when you talk about the suicides and all those kind of things, deplorable numbers there. that said, colonel, regarding the first part of our conversation with matt, any validity to this? do you or any of your current military colleagues recognize this as a problem? >> well, there had been some problem in the past. don't forget we decided that we were going to go to war and we required a large number of troops without having the political will to have a draft and, therefore, widespread service. and anytime a society does that, you're going to have to relax the standards. and for a period of time we did have either mlax standards or standards not followed. the people who recruit soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines into the service don't have to deal with them once they're in. having said all that, at the end of t

as if there are only about 28 undecided voters left in the united states of america. very small percentage. even if governor romney convinces 51% of these undecideds to support him, doesn't he also have to peel away votes from president obama to win this thing? >> well, sure. i think one of the fallacies about independent, undecided voters is that we don't look at the people who say they're for president obama or governor romney and look at the people who weren't very strongly committed to casting their votes, the people who we call in the business leaners. someone's leaning for obama, but when they're asked, are you absolutely certain you're going to vote for obama, no. but they're leaning to obama. those votes are up for grabs. just as the leaners romney are up for grabs. it's more than just the people who say they're undecided. those leaners can be persuaded by debate performance. and let me tell you, look at governor romney's performance last week in education nation, at our station, at the clinton global initiative, he sounded good, he talked policy, he was on his game. anybody who thinks t

in that war if you became the president of the united states. it is one thing to screw up your nominating convention. like this. it's another thing to deny you screwed it up and said you did something that you did not do. when you say you went to the american legion and gave a speech about policy ideas, you did not do that. the press does follow you. you were right about that. the candidate will try to make up for this with a speech on the 9/11 anniversary. if he tries to continue to deny that he made the mistake in the first place, he will have compounded this error gravely. n? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. like the elephant on my chest... he thought he was having a heart attack. she said, "take an aspirin, we need to go to the hospital." i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

to disappoint and mitt romney really next to the president of the united states looks like someone with better ideas is going to fix this, then in the final weeks he could make the sale and win. >> what are those better ideas? you cannot say you have them and not present them, and i think that's what i hear from a lot of people as well who are those undecideds that i still wonder how undecided they are. nefrlgs, michael, i love you because you talk to people all day long on your radio show. what's the most common thing you hear right now, especially related to this specific jobs report after the convention? >> let me say, people seemed underwhelmed by the president's speech last night, tamron. one fellow from boston said it reminds him of the beatles. they had so many hits it reached a point where it was hard to have an extraordinary song because they already had a great catalog. by that he meant that the president has so often knocked it out of the park that the bar was very high for him, and it made it very difficult for him to have an extraordinary night last night. by all accounts it was a
in the world in the united states. and it's received by people who vote republican. so there is no partisan virtue one side or the other on the question of receiving government benefits. >> perry, the romney campaign, the republicans have accused the president, been doing it for years now of accusing him of class warfare. it now off the table given romney's remarks and the gop's defense of those remarks? >> no. you heard romney in the days after the comment. instead of apologizing for it, kind of doubling down on it and saying i think you're going to hear more in the debates about he won't call them -- romney won't call obama the food stamp president, but he'll get close to doing that. this kind of class warfare argument from the republican side about the notion that americans don't pay income tax is something that not just mitt romney's view. paul ryan has talked about that. scott walker has talked about that. >> sure. >> he is going to come back to this issue, and it will be interesting to see how obama really contrasted and makes clear that we're all in this together. we're all paying ta
are five weeks out around we and we're are in a dead heat against the president of united states. >> not to interrupt, what's the message? >> the message is a clear one. >> these are the two paths here this is the foundation, the philosophy of the two campaigns. one towards more and more dependant nation. the other towards a people that are self-reliant. where they can be proud of the work they, do the product they produce. >> let me get a break in here. we'll have more of this look forward to the debates. how this, this debate will play out when they go head to head, with our roundtable after this.

leads to economic growth here in the united states. >> yes, as i mentioned in the column, i brought a version of that chart to see paul ryan a year or so ago when hes and a member of congress and, like a lot of journalists i spoke to him regularly about economic pr policy and said, how do you square this chart with the idea tax cuts are the most important factor in creating economic growth? you don't need a chart, think about the last 20 years or so. h.w. bush first, then bill clinton raised taxes, all of these predictions of doom, instead we had the '90s boom and george w. bush cut taxes and there were predictions of prosperity and instead we had the slowest decade since world war ii and then the crisis. none of this is to say that tax cuts cause economic problems or tax increases lead to prosperity. i don't know anyone who seriously makes that argument. the question is, how important are tax cuts to economic growth? and i don't know how you look at recent history and say that relatively modest changes in the top marginal tax rate is the main force driving the american economy. >>
're going to be president of the united states. listen, ann romney is a very sincere and wonderful person. i have no doubt that mitt romney is a good person. but in terms of being a president, based on the policies that they've laid forward, based on what he said he will do and then how they've changed their position, or etch-i-sketched it away, he has to say what he will actually stand for. pointed out by his own opponent saying nobody knows what he stands for. i think ann romney does as best she can to warm him up, but it's not a question of warmth. it's a question of specificity. on this question, as it relates to not burdening the middle class more and getting rid of some of the very popular things that are so important, like mortgage deduction and child tax credits. those impact people directly. >> let me ask you about what congress can and should be doing. big issues facing you now, funding the government past september 30th, the farm bill, the fiscal cliff. what happens if the election passes and nothing gets done? how do you make this work? >> that has been the ploy of the republican
that the president believes the libyan attack was an act of terror. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it seems to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign affairs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving sta
